in charlotte, north carolina. democrats have renominated president barack obama after a long and electrifying nomination speech by the former president, bill clinton. >> he answered the attacks last week made in tampa, and plenty of attacks of his own. >> in tampa, the republican argument against the president's re-election was actually pretty simple, pretty snappy. it went something like this, we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. now, but they did it well, they looked good, they sounded good. they convinced me that they all love their families and their children, and were grateful they had been born in america. really, i'm not -- they did. and this is important. they convinced me they were honorable people who believed what they said. we just have to make sure the american people know what those commitments are. because in order to look like an acceptable reasonable moderate alternative to president obama, they just didn't say very much about the ideas they offered over the last two years. they couldn't. because they want to go back t
. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. now, i -- i, i want -- i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states. and, i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk. oh, about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative. how we want everybody to depend on the government. how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairman that the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but, as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it. with business and government actually working together to promote gr
said hillary clinton, 72 said michelle obama. >> a lot of her fans out there. she had an excellent speech, there's no doubt about that. >> for wolf blitzer and i. piers morgan continues our coverage from the n pires. >> good evening and welcome to charlotte's hottest hot spot. the cnn grill. the political meeting sometimes over a beer or two. i'm here with two trusty drinkers. and my political all star panel. where else but the speeches in great stuff tonight including rising star, san antonio mayor. the democrats not so secret weapon. >> he knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it and he wants everyone in this country, everyone to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we're from or what we look like or who we love. >> you have attracted quite a crowd. >> it is the sizzling energy bouncing off the place. the castro brothers were very die n dynamic. michelle obama knocked it out of the park as you americans would say. >> i thought she
wouldn't have said it that way. i think the broader point though is with lousy obama economy, entrepreneurship is at the lowest level in years. we need more tax breaks created. >> more the arican people to throw out barack obama they have to believe that mitt romney understands their cares and concerns and can do something about it. it is hard for them when all they see is a sound bite saying he doesn't care. his words not mine >> well, it shouldn't have been sate that way. but i didn't read the full context that way, pierce. i have read that he wants the economy to get better to create more taxpayers to fund governments so that we can do something about the $16 trillion in debt. he wouldn't say it that way again. the broader point about having a debt reducer and job creator is a good point. >> let me tell you the results of three polls. one is michigan mit romney's home state. barack obama 52%, mitt romney 44%. and then virginia, this is your home state. barack obama 5 50%, mitt romney 43%. and then wisconsin. a clear pattern of a lead and momentum in the favor of the presid
, of course nominating president obama for a second term, but tonight we heard from the star of the show, first lady, michelle obama. we'll show you the first lady, and the speeches, take a look. >> serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege. but back when we first came together four years ago, i still had some concerns about this journey we had started. while i believed deeply in my husband's vision for this country, and i was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, i was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance. how will we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight? how would they feel being unrooted from their school, their friends and the only home they had ever known? see, our life before moving to washington was filled with simple joys. saturdays at soccer games. sundays at grandmother's house. and a date night for barack obama and me was either date, dinner or a movie, because i couldn't stay awake for both. and the truth is, i loved the life we had built for our girls. and i deeply loved the man
, president obama spoke out about all of this on the campaign trail today. >>> people around the world, i want people to hear me, to all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. it will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> secretary of state, hillary clinton, tonight paid tribute to the two security personnel killed alongside ambassador chris stevens. tyrone wood and glen dougherty. she said, this violence should shock people of all faiths and traditions. people of conscience and good will every we are must stand together against violence, hate and division. we have two reporters covering this story for us. arwa damon is in tripoli. ben wedeman is in cairo. let me go to arwa. you are in benghazi for us right now. what's the scene like there? >> well, everyone we have been speaking to and i literally just landed here two hours ago, is incredibly distraught of what took place. they are in utter shock and want to make clear how anguished they are over what
that he would not have said it this way, but with the lousy obama e kconmy, that unploem ploimt ove 40%, and food stam republicans the highest in history and entrepreneurship in the lowest level in 30 year, and so we have to do better, and we need a job creator and i believe in that part, we need more jobs created because we need more people working. >> for the american people to throw out barack obama, they have to belie that mitt romney understands their cares and concerns, and can do something about it. it is very hard for them when all they see in the last 48 hours is a sound bite of him saying that he does not care about nearly half of the population. his words, not mine. >> well, it shouldn't have been said that way, and i think he would agree. but i didn't read the full context that way. he wants the economy to be better to create more taxpayers to have more people funding government to do something about this $16 trillion national debt. i mean, that is the larger takeaway. but he certainly would not say it that way again, but the broader point about to have a champion for the s
to a rousing end. president obama repeatedly asked voters to choose his vision of the future. >> no party has a monopoly on wisdom. no democracy works without compromise. i want to get this done, and we can get it done. but when governor romney and his friends in congress tell us we can somehow lower our deficits by spending trillions more on new tax breaks for the wealthy. what did bill clinton call it? you do the math. i refuse to go along with that. and as long as i'm president, i never will! >> president obama a little earlier. democrats had high hopes for this party in charlotte. but did they hit the mark? i'm joined by john king, gloria borger and debbie wasserman schultz. john, put everything in context. >> if you've watched every big speech by president obama, it was not his greatest speech. this was a more workmanlike speech, but it was smart strategically. will his new promises be believed? he's an incumbent president and he's made some mistakes. strategically he wanted to convince people this is a hard thing i inherited. i need your help. i'm more on your side than the other guy. h
want to help all americans and my five points will do it. >> meanwhile, president obama facing tough questions in a forum by the spanish language univision network. >> you can't change washington from the inside. you can only change it from the outside. i'd really like to concentrate on in my second term being in a much more constant conversation with the american people, so that they can put pressure on congress to help move some of these issues forward. >> joining me now with more on big story, george stephanopoulos, co-anchor of abc's "good morning america" and host of "this week with george stephanopoulos." welcome. you're the perfect guy to ask. when you were with bill clinton you went through great highs and the occasional massive low. mitt romney has clearly hit a bit of a buffer moment here. could be a game changing moment. could be an election ending moment in terms -- >> that's going a little far. >> is it going too far? people are calling it that. >> you know why you're low to him in the september before the election, bill clinton's lows were more during the primary season

with a nuclear weapon is unacceptable, and by the way, i'm quite sure president obama when he says that, he means it and intends to stand by it. i think america is also giving a very strong message to iran, but everybody wants to resolve this without a conflict because that is sensible and the best way of doing it, because the consequences of any conflict would be very serious, profoundly unpredictable. >> let's see what bjamin netanyahu today. he had this extraordinary chart he produced which was very effective. take a look. >> so how much enriched uranium do you need for a bomb? and how close is iran to getting it. let me show you. brought a diagram for you. here's the diagram. >> there was the diagram. he went on to show where the red line was. he basically said look, the process and speed of the enriching of uranium going on in iran, they could have a nuclear bomb ready to use by next summer. do you believe that? do you have any evidence for that? have you seen anything -- >> look, what the evidence is is something i wouldn't really comment on and by the way, there will be a lot of informatio

advice do you give him to get things back on track? do you want to see him go harder at barack obama? >> well, i have to think that it's been a pretty rough period because everything he says, they attack him and i think he's going to have to get very tough and frankly, he's got to fight fire with fire. they're blaming him for egypt, okay? this is a beauty. they blamed him the other day for egypt. now, egypt's blowing up with a horrible foreign policy that we had, and they actually put the blame on mitt romney. i said what did he have to do with egypt? it really is, it's a nasty campaign and honestly, mitt is going to have to be both very smart, which he is, and very nasty, which frankly, he's not. and he's got to get that way because they are coming at him with all barrels loaded and he's going to have to get that way and very quickly, in my opinion. when i see what happened with, as an example, the memo or the statement he made having to do with libya, and having to do with other things, having to do with egypt, and he's getting blamed for all this, it's incredible. he has nothing t
